Anabaena

Anabaena

Anabaena is a genus of filamentous cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, found as plankton. It is known for its nitrogen fixing abilities, and they form symbiotic relationships with certain plants, such as the mosquito fern.

They are one of four genera of cyanobacteria that produce neurotoxins, which are harmful to local wildlife, as well as farm animals and pets.

Gloeocapsa

Gloeocapsa

Gloeocapsa is a genus of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) in which a number of usually spherical cells are enclosed in a thick sheath of mucilage.

Cells form new mucilaginous sheaths and as they divide, the mucilage of the whole colony usually becomes multiply lamellate. Such sheaths within sheaths are more conspicuous in some species than in others, and those species in which the sheaths are scarcely lamellate have been separated off into a separate genus, Gloeocapsopsis.

Nostoc

Nostoc

Nostoc is a genus of fresh water cyanobacteria that forms spherical colonies composed of filaments of moniliform cells in a gelatinous sheath. When on the ground, a Nostoc colony is ordinarily not seen; but after a rain it swells up into a conspicuous jellylike mass, which was once thought to have fallen from the sky, whence the popular names, fallen star and star jelly. It is also called witches' butter.

It can be found on moist rocks, at the bottom of lakes and springs, and rarely in marine habitats. These bacteria sometimes contain photosynthetic pigments in their cytoplasm to perform photosynthesis. It may also grow symbiotically within the tissues of plants, such as the aquatic fern Azolla (mosquito fern) or hornworts, providing nitrogen to its host.

Oscillatoria

OscillatoriaOscillatoria is a genus of filamentous bacteria which is named for the oscillation in its' movement (cyanobacteria). It is commonly found in watering-troughs waters, and is mainly blue-green or brown-green.
